CHANGES TO THE BACHELOR OFARTS, PLAN I DEGREE IN HUMAN ECOLOGY
IN THE COLLEGE OF NATURAL SCIENCES CHAPTER OF
THE UNDERGRADUATE CATALOG, 2004-2006

On page 410, under the heading DEGREES in the section BACHELOR OF ARTS, PLAN I, in the College of Natural Sciences chapter in The Undergraduate Catalog, 2002-2004, make the following changes:


Human Ecology

[Major: Thirty semester hours in the Department of Human Ecology, of which at least fifteen must be in upper-division courses. No more than fifteen hours of lower-division coursework in the department may be counted toward the degree.]

To fulfill the Area C requirement for the Bachelor of Arts, human ecology majors must complete Mathematics 305G, 408K, or 408C; Mathematics 316; either Chemistry 301, 302, and Biology 211 or Chemistry 301, Biology 211 and 212, and Biology 213 or 214; and two to four additional hours in astronomy, biology, chemistry, computer sciences, geological sciences, mathematics, and/or physics. Courses designed for nonscience majors may not be counted toward this requirement.

Major: Thirty semester hours of coursework in the Department of Human Ecology, including at least fifteen hours of upper-division coursework and at least six hours chosen from each of the following areas: (a) Human Development and Family Sciences 304, 312, 313, 113L, 322, 333L, and 337; (b) Nutrition 307, 107L, 311, 111L, 315, 316, 318, 332, and 338W; and (c) Textiles and Apparel 205, 105L, 316Q, 319, 325L, and 325M.

The student must earn a grade of at least C in each course in the major. To develop a meaningful and coherent degree program, the student should select courses with the assistance of faculty and academic advisers.



RATIONALE: Enrollment in the BA Plan I program is projected to increase as the result of the TXA enrollment plan, NTR curriculum revisions, and the desire of students for a flexible general program in H E. Since students may wait a year or so before selecting a major, Area C requirements are specified that satisfy all BS degree plans in the department and that can be transferred to other departments or universities. Also, students who do not pass the portfolio review for TXA need a fallback plan under which to graduate without unreasonable delay. The science courses specified also satisfy life science and composite science certification requirements; a significant number of H E majors obtain teacher certification.
